Prior to boarding we will request a copy of each pets current vaccination certificate (C5 or equivalent) which must remain current for the time of boarding and not less than 10 days old.

Pets will only be delivered into the hands of the owner or responsible adult. Our home service requires the owner or a responsible member of the family to be present for collection or delivery.

We will not collect or deliver to unattended homes under any circumstances.

Sparrows In The Treetop shall not be responsible for any loss or injury arising from any cause whatsoever. As dogs are permitted to mix, a minor injury is possible but unlikely. However, this should always be considered. We will not mix/husbandry of ‘Staffordshire Terriers’ Staffys colloquially, or any derivative breeding of staffys unless these pets are from the same family

As dogs are boarded in share accommodation during peak periods, any dog, which is deemed unsuitable to share, will be housed singularly at the pet owners expense. This is in effect during peak periods such as Christmas and Easter holidays. We would seek to inform pet owner at the earliest possible time should this need arise.


Admissions to be at Sparrows in the Treetop between 7:30am – 12:00noon strictly.

Collections from us can occur at any time between 7:30am – 3:30pm. There is no need to ring as your pet will be ready on the date that you have nominated. (Please advise if it is likely to be after 2:00pm in fairness to your pets’ welfare.)

All animals must be in by 12 midday on arrival days

Late arrivals or departures will not be accepted or released outside our operating hours as above.

Select Public Holidays between 9:00am – 11:00am only.

We do NOT open Sundays, Christmas Day or Good Friday and some select Public Holidays.

Management reserve the right to charge full booking fee to clients that fail to cancel or attend bookings during peak periods**

All charges are subject to alteration without notice.

Any animal requiring veterinary treatment during their stay will be taken to the Veterinary Surgeon nominated by the Management. All Veterinary Surgeon’s charges will be paid by the animal’s owner. Charges for transportation to or from such surgery will depend on distance travelled.

During school holiday periods, dates and services booked will be charged whether used or not. This only applies to school holidays to enable us to assist everyone.
